There was some speculation that this photo might actually be a photoshop. ALot of people believed it was, because the car was never seen again. But maybee BMW are trying extra hard to keep the car secret, which they do well if they want to (z3 coupe, z4 coupe for example). Unfortunatly from our vantage point, its hard to say,..........

Good point. Basically if I remember correctly we didn't really see spyshots of those cars until shortly prior to debut. Lets hope thats the case with the 2er coupe. I think most would at least like to see some spyshots of it since the inference might be that means the car is somewhat close to announcement at least.

Since it was posted with a very similar looking convertible, I wondered that also, but the thing that convinced me it was legit was the antennas.

If it was a photoshop, whoever did it was very clever to include the antennas that weren't on the soft-top version.

Anyway, I think it's a real photo. The roof line doesn't look as bubble shaped as the photoshops that are floating around.

Found the large version of the coupe pic and cabrio pic (updated my first post with the pix). Gotta say the coupe looks great... but hard to tell if it was photoshopped or not.

The picture of the Coupe definitely looks like a photoshop job to me.

Have a look at the shape of the rear window and compare it to the rear window on the side of the car you can't see. The side you can't see looks more like the shape of the convertible window.

By the way, Hi!!! everyone, I'm new here. I currently drive a MINI Cooper S but eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new Coupe :biggrin:

I agree it does seem like a photoshop.

But you know there was a Z5 that was cought in spy photos only once ever and never seen again, because of that it was believed to be a photoshop for over 2 years. Then a few months ago the car surfaced as an official prototype car to show off new technology. SO the car did infact exist it was just a very very closely guarded secret.

The same may hold true for this 2 series in these pictures, it may be a pshop, or a very well guarded secret.
